"Magical Day", JamieGramlich from Fort Smith, Arkansas
I would recommend Alda's Magnolia Hill to anyone who desires a magical time. We were so impressed with our son's wedding day. It was like a fairy tale event. The family and staff of Ms. Alda make you feel right at home. Everyone was treated so special. Thank you, Alda, Family, and Staff.
It was a truly glorious day that our families will all remember. God Bless each of you for all you do. Also, I'd like to thank you for wearing "your bossy pants".
